Chicken's are laying!

Picking paw paw's
Picking paw paw's

Four months ago we purchased 15 chickens with the vision of being able to use the eggs to help support the poor families we help each week. Our gardeners built the chicken coop in December 2021 under the guidance of a registered builder. They also constructed the chicken feeders and water dispensers using PVC piping. This not only saved on the cost of the coop but also gave 4 men an opportunity to learn new skills.

Three weeks ago our chickens began laying eggs and we are able to collect between 15-25 eggs per day. The staff who care for the chicken are able to sell the eggs either at the market or back to the foundation which allows them to learn new skills and also earn an income. 

Our gardens have continued to produce bountifully and we have been successfully growing many herbs used in Thia cooking. These plants are very profitable as they regrow quickly saving resources and time.

Our paw paw trees, banana trees, and star fruit trees have also produced bountifully.

We have been learning how to build and use simple composting systems that use 2 buckets and a small basket. These systems are cheap and easy to build as well as very effective in providing nutrients to the soil and plants.
